Welcome to Modern Foreign Languages
Welcome to the Languages Department at Blue Coat! We are an active department, who are keen for you to gain the skills necessary for you to communicate in a country in which you are studying the language. We use a mixture of methods; including role plays, videos, games and technology as well as traditional grammar lessons. We are also keen for students to visit the target language country and, when allowed, Year 8 and Year 9 pupils will have the chance to go to Geneva, Barcelona or Munich. We also aim to send Sixth Form pupils on a work experience or language study course. We want pupils to get great results, but we also want them to enjoy the acquisition of a skill that could be of use in later life, either on holiday or in a job.
